<p>[See <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2017/02/14/fake-news…; for more.] In another round of fake news, the <em>New York Times</em> on Tuesday quoted from a bogus Twitter account purporting to be from Mike Flynn, the general who resigned on Monday night as National Security Adviser. The <em>Times</em> used a quote from &ldquo;@GenMikeFlynn&rdquo; asserting, &ldquo;But if a scapegoat is what&#39;s needed for this Administration to continue to take this great nation forward, I am proud to do my duty.&rdquo; This is a fake quote from a fake Twitter account. Appearing on <em>CBS This Morning</em>, <em>Times</em> journalist David Sanger pushed the tweet: &ldquo;And he said himself in a Tweet this morning, that while he was responsible, there are others who are responsible, too.&rdquo;</p>
